• The Quaternary climatic changes resulted in range shifts of species, providing chances for hybridization. However, the genetic signatures of such ancient introgression have rarely been reported. To investigate such signatures, we performed a phylogeographical study on the perennial plant Veratrum album ssp. oxysepalum, which may have hybridized long ago(More)
Recently, several efforts to implement and use an unconditionally secure multi-party computation (MPC) scheme have been put into practice. These implementations are passively secure MPC schemes in which an adversary must follow the MPC schemes. Although passively secure MPC schemes are efficient, passive security has the strong restriction concerning the(More)
We provide a garbling scheme which creates garbled circuits of a very small constant size (four bits per gate) for circuits with fan-out one (formulas). For arbitrary fan-out, we additionally need only two ciphertexts per additional connection of each gate output wire. We make use of a trapdoor permutation for which we define a generalized notion of(More)
Issues related to ensuring patient privacy and data ownership in clinical repositories prevent the growth of translational research. Previous studies have used an aggregator agent to obscure clinical repositories from the data user, and to ensure the privacy of output using statistical disclosure control. However, there remain several issues that must be(More)
We develop an algorithm to optimize routing and channel assignment for multi-channel wireless mesh networks. We apply our proposed algorithm to a cognitive radio system using TV white space channels, which has been developed in previous researches. To maximize the capacity and throughput of such multi-channel mesh networks, conventional algorithms(More)
